it’s tuesday and i am again participating in the “top ten tuesday”, which is a weekly challenge hosted by the broke and the bookish. this weeks topic is:

Top Ten Unique Book Titles

oh i love that topic! there are so many books out there, that have a unique book title in my opinion and i am happy to share my favorites with you! let me know your favorite titles in the comments. 🙂


“top ten unique book titles”


1.) “turtles all the way down” by john green


when i heard, that the book title for john green’s new book would be “turtles all the way down” i was so excited. this title is amazing! and i was looking forward to find out, what the meaning is behind it. and the way it was revealed was great. definitely a unique title!


2.) “the curious incident of the dog in the night-time” by mark haddon


i think i have never seen a title, that is so unique than this one! i can’t even remember it, i always have to look up, how to write it! 😀


3.) “one flew over the cuckoo’s nest” by ken kesey


i swear, i am not doing a fall-cover theme list again. it just is coincidence. 😀 i really love the title “one flew over the cuckoo’s nest” because for me it’s very unique and it was definitely the reason, why i was drawn to this book.


4.) “the perks of being a wallflower” by stephen chbosky


i always loved this title, because for me it stood out. the first time i heard it, i had to look up, what is meant by wallflower. and i was sold. i am so glad to have picked up this book, because not just the title is unique, the story is unique too! 🙂


5.) “extremly loud and incredibly close” by jonathan safran foer


again a title i love! i immediately picked up the book, because i wanted to know what’s behind that title. and i am so happy i did, because this book is fantastic!


6.) “simon vs. the homo sapiens agenda” by becky albertalli


i think both “simon vs. the homo sapiens agenda” and “the upside of unrequited” by becky albertalli are unique titles and definitely the reason, why i wanted to pick up the books.


7.) “autoboyography” by christina lauren


i think this title is perfect! “autoboyography” fits the story so very well that in the end i had goosebumps. it’s an amazing story, heart breaking and heart warming and just wonderful. and “autoboyography” as a title is simple, short, but totally on point.


8.) “aristotle and dante discover the secrets of the universe” by benjamin alire sáenz


i guess i love long titles in books. the same goes for “aristotle and dante discover the secrets of the universe”. the first time i heard it, i wanted to pick it up. it promises a book about revelation, about insight to the human life and it promises a great story between two people!! i am so excited to read this one! 🙂


9.) “the hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy” by douglas adams


this one is easy. i love everything about galaxies, i love sci-fi. so of course i wanted someone to guide me through it. i love this title and this book is just hilarious!


10.) “we are the ants” by shaun david hutchinson


i love “we are the ants”. not just the book but also the title. it’s also simple but it definitely raises the question, why are we the ants? i wanted to know. i read it. i knew why. it’s a fantastic read and i think it deserves more hype. i don’t see this book around much!



these were my favorite unique titles! what about you? do you agree? do you disagree? why? let me know in the comments! 🙂

  1. I seriously had an “AHA!”-moment when I discovered what Green’s title was all about, haha.
    Totally get your opinion on The Perks of being a Wallflower as well. The title fits perfectly to the story once you know what it’s about!

    Autoboyography just sounds so intriguing, haha. One day I’ll get my hands on it and read it!
    Aristotle and Dante discover the Secrets of the Universe has such a beautiful font. I’ve seen it around a couple of times already today and the font just sticks with me. :’)

  2. Some great choices. I was so intrigued when I heard as to what Turtles All the Way Down meant before I read the book and I was so excited when I found out! I also love The Fault in Our Stars as a title by John Green. I also 100% agree with Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night – Time, Perks of Being a Wallflower and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close!! 🙂

  3. It’s funny because there have actually been at least 7 other published books with the title of Turtles All the Way Down. I’ve never heard of We Are The Ants, but I know I picked up the Foer and Haddon books the first time cause I found myself intrigued by the titles!

  4. What a fun topic! Great list! You caught some good ones here (and some excellent books as well as titles!). Two that I read this past 6 months with great titles are Be Frank with Me (once you read it, you realize it’s a double meaning) and Lilian Boxfish Takes a Walk – seems like a simple title but there is so much depth behind it!
